Sometimes I feel the need to remind my students of how young and amazing they are!
I hated to see these paintings head out the door!
Get ready for gorgeous flowers created with a variety of materials and compositions.
Each color you see is a color they mixed. :)
(For those who are interested, I linked some of the art materials to the product we used.)
Students zoomed in on the flower - creating interesting centers and their own unique flower.
OIL PASTEL W/ WATERCOLOR WASH:
These young artists created a bouquet of flowers including 2 or 3 different kinds of flowers
and a chosen color harmony. (secondary, analogous, complementary)
LIQUID WATERCOLORS (I like to call them watercolor dyes.):
Each student chose a photograph and looked carefully at each petal they drew.
They also chose whether they wanted to work with a rectangular or square piece of paper.
ACRYLIC PAINT ON CANVAS:
These girls worked on developing light and dark values while learning how to manipulate acrylic paint on an 8x10 canvas. (They are also quite competitive when it comes to 'Name that Musical' while listening to songs on Pandora's 'Showtunes' station.)
